The news is abuzz with lots of talk about the "super moon" which can be viewed on the evening of 11/13/16.  We've all seen the moon many times before but what's so special about it this time?  Well, two things actually make this something you won't want to miss.  First, the moon will be closest to the earth in its orbit since 1948.  Second, the moon's phase just happens to be a full moon and according to scientists will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than a normal full moon.  In this photo, I captured the super moon as it rose above the trees in this residential neighborhood.  If you missed tonight's super moon, no worries, if you've got a lot of patience you can catch the next one in 18 years on November 25, 2034.
